Barcelona rule out Douglas recall from Sporting Gijon

Barcelona will not be recalling fullback Douglas from his loan with Sporting Gijon.

Aleix Vidal is expected to be out for five months with the ankle injury he sustained against Alaves on Saturday.

Sport says neither Luis Enrique nor anyone at the club, including sporting director Robert Fernandez, is planning to recall the Brazilian.

Despite the dilemma of having to face the rest of the season with Sergi Roberto as the only right-back, inside the club they don't feel Douglas is in condition to come in and do an important job.
